FKM (fluoroelastomer) was introduced in 1957 to meet the needs in the aerospace industry for a high-performance elastomer. Since then the use of FKM rubber has spread quickly to many more industries especially the fluid power and chemical industries. FKM material is one of the best elastomers around today that can perform in very hot and extremely corrosive environments.

Due to its specialist properties, FKM is much more expensive compared to other elastomers.
